Springtime Daffodils

I love daffodils and always thought that stampin up's delight in life stamp set kind of looked like daffodils. So for today's way to use it challenge, I got a chance to try it out and see. I love how they turned out. The way to use it challenge was to find a way to use yoyo yellow, a color I don't use all that often, so i paired it with another color that I don't use all that often only orange and now I have a bouquet of springtime daffodils.

I have to tell you all something so cute and kind of funny.......LBMO....already. As most of you our youngest daughter Megan has autism, now Megan is getting really good at reading! So we were at burger king on Friday and Megan and I were sitting at the table waiting for Jason to bring our dinner, when she starts looking at the menu board, so she turns to me and says fish sticks???!! I say yes fish sticks good reading! Megan says fish sticks with a puzzled look on her face, the it dawns on me how strange this probably is to her, she knows what a fish is and she knows what a stick is but a fish stick.....ROTFLMBO!! She must think we are the weirdest people for wanting to eat fish sticks....LOL! So this morning while I was stamping she was coloring beside me and she draws fish sticks, fish that look like sticks.......SO CUTE!! and kind of funny!.....LMBO! Just had to share!

Kelly your story about Megan reading the menu at McDonalds reminded me of a funny story. I had my bosses granddaughter at McDonalds one afternoon and she was just learning to read. Her teacher had things in the classroom labeled with their names to help them learn. She comes running up to me and says "I can spell trashcan!" I said "You can?" and she proudly spelled
"P U S H"

wow, I love everything about this card. The flower centers, the doodling on the scallops, the embossing, the colors. Beautiful work, as always. Linda
